About: We acquired this lot of “King Grade” Big Red Robe (Da Hung Pao) tea back in 2005 at a tea wholesaler in Xiamen, China. Made from the few remaining true Da Hung Pao cultivars from the cliffs of the Wu Yi Mountains, this beautifully aged “King Grade” Big Red Robe is truly a masterpiece. The dried leaves have a spicy, earthy, peachy, and fruity aroma. The tea broth is remarkably smooth with a very pronounced yet subtle sweet aftertaste.
